Implement It!

Congratulations on joining the IIoT with Maple Systems. Below you will find actionable steps to walk you through implementing IIoT solutions for your orgnanization. Maple control interface products support many Internet-enabled features that can bring value to your business yet are easy to configure and maintain. The resources on this page will start putting these powerful features to work for you, so that you can reap the rewards of the IIoT.

Step 1:

If you haven’t already, please review the IIoT information outlined in our IIoT Overview tab to familiarize yourself with basic terms and functionality of Maple IIoT solutions.

Step 2:

Determine which Maple products are best suited to your unique needs. These can be found on our IIoT Solutions page.

  • The HMI and cMT series can act as an Edge Gateway, serving as a protocol translator and MQTT Publisher. As a Publisher, the HMI will connect to a remote MQTT Broker. The HMI or cMT can also act as the MQTT Broker, receiving and passing along data from other devices in the system. In addition, HMIs and cMTs can serve as both Broker and Publisher at the same time.
  • The OMI6000 series supports all three IIoT functions; it can act as an Edge Gateway MQTT Publisher, host an MQTT Broker, or receive data as an MQTT Subscriber. The OMI6000 series is capable of running any combination of these three functions simultaneously, including two or three at once.
